Ed itor ial Welcome 2021!!

To tell you the truth, I wasn’t very excited as we turn the

corner to this new year. Traveled down to Ada, Oklahoma, for the New Year’s National Sheep and Goat Jackpot, and boy, was that great medicine! I’m writing this editorial out here in the parking lot of the show feeling very excited and more than hopeful for the future. Why the optimism? It simple. Young families from coast to coast partied last night with games, dancing, fun and more fun. Good, friendly, positive, social distancing, Godly fun to bring in the New Year. Wow, to see and here this young generation was a big, big, big boost. It’s easy to get negative going down the road and thinking too much. Sometimes the good Lord thumps me on the head and lets me see the positive, lets me feel the power of youth and livestock. I can’t wait for the next show, now. Jackpots, locals, counties, district and OYE. Here we come! See you down the road. See you 2021! Let’s Party! Page 6 - JAN/FEB 2021

By Ashlyn Larman, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Reporter The supervised agricultural experience (SAE) program involves practical agricultural activities performed by students outside of scheduled classroom and laboratory time. SAE’s provide a method in agricultural education for students to receive real-world career experiences in an area of agriculture that they are most interested in. The SAE project is a mandatory, year-long school project for all students in agricultural classes. This type of experiential learning is the 100% “hands-on” portion of the total agricultural education program. It is designed and carried out by the student with the support of the parent and the supervision of the agriculture teacher and/or employer. It requires the student to keep accurate records (hours worked, money made, etc.) of their experience and compile it in the online SAE record book. M-O FFA member Kaylee Blagden understands the importance of good record keeping. Kaylee decided to raise and sell rabbits for her SAE. When asked what led to

the start of her SAE, Blagden said when she started showing she didn’t enjoy it as much as she thought she would. However, she still wanted to work with animals and have them as a pet. She stressed that the number one item that you should always record about your SAE is the amount of money that you spend and make. The purpose of her SAE is to inform people about rabbits and their many uses. She has been doing this SAE project for seven months and has loved every minute of it. Through an SAE, students are also able to gain life skills such as leadership and responsibility that will continue to develop throughout life. The skills that they acquire will be used continuously throughout their educational careers and their lives. Member Kaylea Taylor is developing these skills through her unique SAE. Kaylea started a small business for her SAE. Her enthusiasm for Boer Goats and exhibiting them led her to start a showmanship camp for youth specializing in goats. When talking to Kaylea she said that it was the kids who took the time to

share their passion for showing goats when she was younger that formed her unique drive in the ring. As she got older, she decided to share her passion with the younger kids. Her favorite part of the SAE is that she gets to see all the kids grow in their showing abilities. The number one item for her to record is the number of kids that attend each camp and their growth from year to year. KayLea also runs a Facebook page as one of her ways to get members interested in her camps. She also hangs posters up at shows for focused advertisements. The next time you see a FFA member, ask them about their SAE. You might be surprised at what they are doing! Kaylea Taylor’s enthusiasm for Boer Goats and exhibiting them led her to start a showmanship camp for youth specializing in goats.

You Can Help Reach a New Record!

The State 4-H leadership team presented the Children’s Hospital Foundation with a $22,764.56 check during State 4-H Roundup in Gallagher Iba Area. Surpassing the year’s goal of $20,000! By Mia Mitchell, State 4-H Reporter Every year 62 million dollars in change are thrown away or lost. Oklahoma members 4-H are striving to change that while making a positive impact on their communities. Change for Change is a statewide service project directed by the State 4-H Leadership Council with a purpose to create change for Oklahoma youth. When you collect loose change at club meetings, work with local schools and businesses to raise money, or ask family and friends for donations, you are making an impact! Change for Change benefits the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Oklahoma City. The Children’s Hospital serves youth in each county of the state of Oklahoma. Just a handful of change can make a difference in the lives of Oklahoma youth. Money can be raised in a variety of ways. The 2019-2020 State 4-H Leadership Council held a 4-H Winter Formal in Chickasha, Oklahoma, in February of 2020 to raise money for Change for Change. This event Page 12 - JAN/FEB 2021

was a success and ended up raising over $1,000! Change for Change is a big part of Oklahoma 4-H and the 20202021 State Council’s goal is to raise $25,000 by the next State 4-H Roundup in July 2021! Making this the highest goal that has ever been set for this project! We believe this goal is doable because everyone is excited to get back to some sort of normal and will be excited to make a change. The second-highest goal was $20,000 which was exceeded by raising over $22,000 in 2019! How can you donate? Each county in Oklahoma has its own way to help raise money for Change for Change. 4-H members help make the statewide community service project more aware in their communities by putting buckets in public areas such as convenience stores, banks, feed stores, extension offices, and more! Other ideas could be bringing a Change for Change bucket at 4-H events, contests, and meetings. You can easily donate at an event specifically raising funds for Change for

Ag Youth Magazine - Braggin’ on Kids for 33 Years!

Change. Oklahoma 4-H organizes multiple events for that particular purpose throughout the year. Many Oklahoma 4-H members also have service projects in multiple counties with all of the proceeds going towards Change for Change. Members can also get involved in their county’s Change for Change challenges. This is a wonderful opportunity for all members to raise funds for Change for Change. If you’re an Oklahoma 4-H member, you can donate it through your county extension educator. You can also hand your donations in to your district coordinator. These educators will turn your donations into the Oklahoma State extension office where your donation will be credited to your county. For those who are not members of Oklahoma 4-H, donations are received directly through the Oklahoma State Extension office. Please contact your county office if you would like to donate. We accept checks and cash. Checks can be sent through the mail. agyouth.com

Modern Technology Benefits Historic Park

By Teagan Charmasson, Shattuck FFA Reporter When people think about agritourism, they may think about Oklahoma, but the small rural town of Shattuck probably never crosses their mind. Nestled just outside of the Oklahoma Panhandle, Shattuck is home to a unique tourist attraction. People come from all over the United States to visit the Shattuck Windmill Museum. There are a total of six windmill museums in the United States; however, none of them match the charm and uniqueness of Shattuck’s museum. This small town treasure has a total of 63 windmills ranging in size, shape, and age. The oldest was used in the 1850s. Recently, Shattuck FFA Vice President Jeronimo Lara and Chairman Reese Sconyers took on a new community service project involving the windmill park. Curator Sue Ann Schoenhals contacted Shattuck FFA last spring about sprucing up some of the park’s signage as well as creating a better map for park visitors to navigate. Reese and Jeronimo volunteered to take on the task and came up with the idea to use a drone for mapping the park. Reese had recently purchased a DJI Mavic 2 drone and was eager to put it to work. Drones are becoming a common piece of equipment in agriculture being used for livestock management, crop and land scouting, weed and pest management. The list goes on. Drone technology is improving agriculture efficiency in many ways and is expected to continue to expand in the coming years. Increased efficiency is top priority for agriculturists because of increased population and yearly reduction in arable land. A great deal of research is currently being conducted surrounding the many benefits of drones. In fact, Oklahoma State University just announced they will be one of five schools to share in a $32.8 billion dollar research Page 16 - JAN/FEB 2021

grant from NASA which utilizes drone technology. Although this research focuses on the transportation sector, OSU is a leader in drone-based research and has conducted environmental studies impacting the agriculture industry. Perhaps the impact of drones on agritourism will be a focus of a research grant in the future? Reese and Jeronimo will complete an aerial map with a numerical key so visitors can easily navigate their way through the park, and learn about each windmill’s history. In addition to the drone mapping, they will refurbish the existing placards that label each windmill. They will be finished with the project in the spring of 2021. This windmill park project is utilizing drone technology to improve in person visits to the park, but could also open the door for virtual visits. With Covid-19 keeping many travelers at home, and schools restricting field trips and travel, the park’s curators may soon decide to provide a virtual tour of their windmills. As technology advances, the possibilities for our little park in Shattuck are endless. If you find yourself in Northwest Oklahoma, be sure to stop by and visit the Shattuck Windmill Museum, you won’t be disappointed!

We welcome stories written by 4-H, FFA and collegiate students. Kaylyn wrote this in her AGCM 4113 class. By Kaylyn Branen, OSU Student Every year during the third weekend of August, the fairgrounds on the corner of Sixth and Main Street are filled with the hustle and bustle of the Collinsville Tri-County Fair, and despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was no exception. As trailers began lining the streets and the barns filled, fair board members were working hard to make sure the show went on for the 75th anniversary of the fair. Last year as they met to begin planning the historic fair, no one could have predicted the obstacles they would have to overcome to put on the event said Sandy Phelps, fair board secretary. In early May, it became apparent fair board members realized the COVID-19 pandemic would affect the 2020 Collinsville Tri-County Fair, said Sandy Phelps, fair board secretary Phelps said.. “As we were planning, we always had in the back of our mind that someone could shut it down like the Health Department or the city,”

Phelps said. “We were always concerned about that, but we thought it was important to be held. All of the exhibitors have put in work all year long, and we think they should be able to exhibit their animals.” After the Oklahoma State Fair was canceled and Tulsa State Fair was still up in the air, Clint Smith, a fair volunteer for 27 years, was optimistic the Collinsville Tri-County Fair would continue. “The only reason I didn’t feel that it wouldn’t be canceled is we don’t carry the same amount of people,” Smith said. “We don’t have the kind of vendors and the huge groups that usually come through like at the state fairs.” The fair board members began working with state officials in order to proceed with the fair, said Kristi Hubler, fair board social media and promotional coordinator. “To start out, I reached out to Blayne [Arthur], the [Oklahoma] Secretary of Agriculture to have a conference with her so we could go over recommendations to make sure we were doing what we needed to be doing,” Hubler said.

The pageant contestants and visiting royalty Page 26 - JAN/FEB 2021

Hubler said she and Arthur discussed the guidelines to have the show and ensure the safety of patrons. After speaking with Arthur, Hubler said they had to submit their plans to the City of Collinsville. “We had to go to their meeting and make a presentation, and when we did the presentation, [we] let them know we had done all of those things and know we had a plan in place,” Hubler said. Although the fair board members and volunteers had several hoops to jump through, it was important for the show to continue on, Phelps said. “These kids are buying their animals in March, and beef kids have already bought their animals prior to when the pandemic began,” Hubler said. “So, they’ve already put in the time and money investment so that they could go to exhibit, and we wanted them to have that opportunity.” Kenda Jones, an Oologah High School senior, has shown at the Collinsville Tri-County Fair for three years and she said it was important for her that it wasn’t canceled. “It would have affected my goats not being able to get out before some of our biggest shows,” Jones said. “One of the big things with showing is your animals need to be able to have the time in the ring and not just time at home.” A lot of time and money goes into showing livestock and as things started opening up, Jones said it was important livestock shows needed to started happening. While it was important for the livestock show was important to continue for the kids, it was also important to sustain the integrity of the event, Smith said. “If you break the cycle, it changes the whole effect of an event,” Smith said. “Once you miss a cycle, it tends to change the event over the whole process. From that point on, agyouth.com


you will always have that feeling, ‘Well, we missed it once, It can happen again.’ “If you don’t ever give that option and keep driving on, you’re saving priorities, and everyone knows it is a solid event,” Smith added. “No matter what they are faced with, they are going to have an event.” However, several changes had to be made to the way the fair was conducted, Phelps said. “We did an online pre-entry this year to try and eliminate some of the lines and the crowds of people in the entry lines,” Phelps said. “We had hand sanitizer available. It seems like we were doing something different all the time.” In addition to added precautions because of due to COVID-19, Hubler said they also had to add precautions for due to vesicular stomatitis virus, which included checking health papers before animals unloaded from the trailers. While the livestock shows continued on, some of the celebrations for the 75th anniversary had to be canceled, Hubler said. “We couldn’t have vendors and indoor events,” Hubler said. “It decreased the participation in our numbers there, but then we had a record year for livestock exhibits. We had out-of-state exhibitors who came in because so much was canceled.” Regardless of the decline in public attendance, the Collinsville Tri-County Fair still brought in exhibitors from across Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas, Phelps said. “It has quite an economic impact on the city,” Phelps said. “We have a lot of people there. I don’t think until the last few years [city officials]they realized how many people that it did draw.” In fact, it is estimated the fair brings in an estimate $18,000 to the town of Collinsville during the three-day event, Phelps said. “We had 615 head of animals this year at the fair, which is a record number,” Phelps said. “We estimate three people come with each animal, and if they spent $10 in town, it adds up fast.” With the added precautions and a record number of entries, the fair board members still pulled off a wonderful event, Jones said. “They did an excellent job of allowing it to go on and allowing it to happen even though they had a lot more exhibitors than normal,” Jones said. “They were still able to make it happen with everything and everyone that entered.” The 2020 Collinsville Tri-County Fair wasn’t the celebration the fair board members had hoped, but it was able to continued for the kids, Hubler said. “We had to give up some things to meet guidelines and [remain above reproach], but we still made our 75th anniversary happen,” Hubler said. agyouth.com

Buffalo FFA Attends OPSU Interscholastics

From left to right: Lily Luckett, Jackson Ramirez, Reid Williams, Cole Parker, Carson Medina, Rance Bay, working the entrance of Crystal Christmas. By Emily Beaner, Woodward FFA Reporter Members of the Woodward FFA Chapter are allowed to volunteer to help with the Crystal Christmas light show each year. Members were thrilled for a moment of normalcy while they stood in the cold at the entrance, exit, and in the gift shop this last week. Students look forward to Crystal Christmas every year, and we are already looking forward to next year! Macie Dunkin, a Woodward FFA member, commented on her time at Crystal Christmas, saying, “I love spending a couple of hours with a few of my friends in the cold. It is always events like these that you make the best memories.” She is completely right! Page 38 - JAN/FEB 2021

By Cheyenne Brown, FFA Reporter Recently, 31 Buffalo FFA members traveled to Goodwell, Oklahoma, for the OPSU Interscholastic Contest. This was the first contest of its kind since last year because of COVID-19. Over 700 students from five states were in attendance! We competed in Pasture and Range, Land, and Public Speaking. All 31 members placed in their respective contests. In the Pasture and Range, we had the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 9th place teams, with 17 members in the Top 20 individually! Eighth graders Randy Rios, Braxton Olmstead, Hadley Hickman, and Jorge Rivera were the champion team. Randy was a high individual edging out Braxton Olmstead who was 2nd high. Jorge was 4th and Hadley was 6th! Simply outstanding! In the Land Contest, we had two individuals compete. Josh Stewart was 7th overall and Cameron Crouch was 9th overall. Excellent work! We finished up the night in the speech contest with Gaby Jordan placing 1st in the Agriscience division, Ian Silver 1st in the Plant Science Division, and Emily McGough 3rd in a tough Natural Resources Division! agyouth.com
